Your skin is the largest organ in your body, but so few people take proper care of it. Sure, your skin will probably get by of its own accord without you facing too many problems. But a proper skincare routine is essential to keep your skin in the best health it can be - particularly the skin in sensitive areas like your face, chest and upper back. Here are a few suggestions that can help you to maintain your skin as best you can!

Stay Hydrated

Let’s start with a step that doesn’t require any specialist products (so is affordable) and that will benefit absolutely everyone. For good skin, you need to make sure that you’re hydrated. Not only is this a good health tip for your overall well being (water helps with many of your body’s vital functions), but being sufficiently hydrated can prevent dry skin and keep your skin plump and fresh. It’s generally recommended that the average adult drinks eight glasses of water a day. This will go towards combating dullness, tightness, flakiness, and dryness. Being hydrated also helps your skin to filter out any impurities, consequently reducing issues such as spots. So, always keep a refillable bottle of water on you and eat more hydrating foods like cucumber, celery, melon, berries and more!

Develop a Skin Care Routine

Everyone should have a skincare routine. It doesn’t necessarily have to be anything elaborate. Instead, you simply need to ensure that you have a face wash and a moisturiser that suit your skin type and can keep your face clean and moisturised. You can find plenty of options at Colorscience. If you’re dedicated to maintaining the best skin possible, you can also get toners, night creams, face masks and more. You may also want to look into skincare products for the body, hands and feet. A great way of discovering amazing new skincare brands is via a monthly beauty box. Once you've found your go-to products, it only takes a few more minutes to incorporate these into your daily routine, but it will make all the difference!


SPF stands for “sun protection factor” and it really is important that you use products containing SPF on your skin on a day to day basis. Generally, people will only use sunscreen when they head away on holiday. But the sun isn’t just a threat when you head to places that are hot and sunny. You’re exposed to UV rays every time you go outdoors, even on overcast days, and they can wreak havoc with the health and appearance of your skin. UV exposure can increase your risk of developing serious conditions, such as cancer, and can also increase the ageing process of your skin. So, use lotions, face creams and lip balms that contain a high SPF!
You can also view a range of Dermatology Services available at Guys & St Thomas.

These are just a few suggestions that can help you to take the best care of your skin possible! They really will make all the difference, so we recommend you get started as soon as you can in order to start seeing the benefits.
